Where to sell an engagement ring in-person
One option is to meet potential buyers in-person. Selling your engagement ring in-person is the perfect method for those who never want the ring out of their sight. Below are the most popular options for selling your engagement ring in-person:
Pawnshops: Pawnshops are a local option that may quickly pay you on the spot and in cash. While this sounds like a tempting offer, it’s important to understand that not all pawnshops have the necessary diamond knowledge to accurately price your ring. Due to this, pawnshops may provide you with a cautiously low offer.
Auction Houses: Auction Houses have gemologists on staff who can assess the value of your engagement ring. The downside is that the process can be very lengthy. In order to sell your engagement ring with an auction house, you must be willing to wait an indefinite amount of time. First an auction must be held, then your engagement ring must be successfully bid on during the auction, if not, you’ll need to wait for another auction which could be in several months. Not only is this a long process, but there is no guarantee that your ring will sell. However, if your engagement ring is bought then the auction house will take a percentage of your earnings.

Where to sell an engagement ring online
The second option for where to sell an engagement ring is by working with online engagement ring buyers. When you sell your engagement ring online you have the convenience of completing the entire selling process around your schedule and from the comfort of your home. Since not everyone has the time to meet with potential buyers, have their engagement rings evaluated and priced in-person, selling online is the perfect option. Below are the most popular methods for selling your engagement ring online:
Private Ads: Thanks to websites like Facebook, eBay and Craigslist, you can quickly make a private ad for your engagement ring. With your own ad you get to set your price and sell directly to the engagement ring’s future buyer. However, without a rich understanding of the second-hand diamond market, pricing your ring will prove to be difficult. Also, not all buyers will feel comfortable buying an expensive item from an unfamiliar seller, especially if you do not have a history of selling high value items. There is no guarantee when or if you ring will sell, so this is not a fast and hassle free option. And finally, but most importantly, you always need to be cautious of potential scammers when selling to an individual online.
